Maybe have a look at some wiring diagrams to compare the 2001 to 2005, there are probably differences. It's funny that everything works when engine is not running, have you checked the charging voltage? Are the grounds all good?

Wonder if it needs a later version of the LKM. Or coding of the current one. Turn off one of the checks or something...

Not many do a full conversion due to the body panels needed. Good luck.

Welcome to the board. Were older sets self adjusting? Does yours have a dash light sensor? When lights flash fast, usually a bad ground causes it.
